LG Has Good Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

LG is one of the superior LCD screen manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and LG also has good ratings for its medium monitors.

Chart

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to it.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think the iiyama GB2773HS which is cheaper; or the AOC I2757F ($169.99), and the Philips 272G5DYEB ($400.00) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

Most medium monitors that came out more than two years ago have between one and three HDMI ports, including the LG 29UM65 which has two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Color Gamut

With a color gamut of 100 percent, the LG 29UM65 has one of the largest color gamuts amongst medium monitors of this age. The smallest color gamut of LCD screens of this spec and age is 62%, the largest is 120%, and the average color gamut is 83%.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the PC displays of this age and type the heights range from 30mm to 4,800mm, and the average height is 370mm. At only 328.2 millimeters, the LG 29UM65 is quite short compared to most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the 29UM65.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most PC monitors of a comparable age and type to the 29UM65 do not have a built-in speaker. The LG 29UM65 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the AOC Q2770 or the Benq BL3200 ($80.00) are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 29UM65 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the 29UM65 are also not 3D compatible.

Flatpanel monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the 272G5DYEB ($400.00), or the 278G4DHSD both from Philips which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 29UM65 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the 29UM65 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC screens of a comparable age and spec to the 29UM65 do not have an integrated card reader. The LG 29UM65 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with an integrated card reader and we think the DELL U2413 ($442.20); or the DELL U2713H ($682.40) are also worth considering.

The width is like having two monitors side by side
Everyone is gonna want one of these. Hands down
Colors look excellent
Screen split software works well
Got it on a perfectly timed 50 off deal which made it an even better value
Desk space Where'd it go
Only comes with a HDMI cable
Not a con, but make sure you know what resolutions through which media your gpu supports. 2560 1080 worked through HDMI on mine, even though the monitors instructions say use DVI-D dual link
2560 1080 is a difficult resolution to work with in Split screen 1280 1080, which Windows does not have
While the bezel is really small, the screen has 10mm where the monitor will not fill, making it a total of 13mm, on the borders. Bottom border is 20mm. So it is not ideal for multi-monitor
